BREAKING 4-27-08 Kenny Wayne Shepherd & Friends Rock the Strand: Benefit for Buddy Flett
The highlight of the concert was when Buddy took the stage: singing, and trading licks on the guitar with Kenny Wayne. It was proof that Buddy was on his way back, and the audience of some 1,200 gave him a standing ovation.
Click here to listen to an interview Buddy gave Tom Pace about what the concert means to him...guitar lessons from Jerry Beach...and, Buddy having to learn to talk all over again.
Tonight, in an effort to help their friend, music legends, including the great blues guitarist and singer, Hubert Sumlin entertained a nearly packed house at the historic Strand Theatre. Click here to listen as Sumlin talks "One-on-One" with Tom Pace backstage at the Strand Theatre.
Another special moment came when Mayor Cedric Glover walked on stage, officially proclaiming Sunday, April 27th, 2008 as, "Buddy Flett Day in Shreveport." Flett seemed to be humbled, and thanked everybody for their support.
It would be truly a night to remember, as Buddy watched a series of local musicians donate their time and talents to help raise money to pay for his medical and living expenses, and most importantly, continue his speech therapy. Click here to read article by John Andrew Prime of The Times.
A master blues musician and singer in his own right, Buddy Flett was stricken with viral encephalitis in February of this year. He was hospitalized at LSU-HSC in ICU for nearly a month, undergoing treatment by four neurologists that literally saved his life.
According to organizers, the nearly four-hour fund-raiser was very successful, thanks to all who donated money to the event and silent auction.
